Decorated functionality 

I ask myself: How could I feel comfortable being decorated? In my outfit I wanted to explore the value of function in a decorated context, i.e. the context of dressing up, which is a context I’ve never felt comfortable in. 

In one of my previous works, I investigated the idea of clothes and their expression for specific occasions. Some clothes are supposed to be worn on weekdays and some are for dressing up. I never seem to fit in with wearing decorated clothes, such as evening wear, and they make me feel mentally uncomfortable. Functional clothes give me a better feeling.
